I never buy underwear.

If you are on the Victoria Secret mailing list, every couple months or so there's a free underwear coupon. I have no shame in walking in, grabbing my free pair, and walking out without buying anything else. This seems to supply a sufficient # of pairs. :)

My ex always did this (though she sometimes bought stuff too). It is amazing how many free offers you get, good strategy to save.

Kind of ironic that the wife and I actually do buy underwear. I guess we just wish we lived somewhere where they weren't needed!

You can probably stay on the list if you buy a bra or two when you need them. Wait for the semi-annual sale.

You could just go commando like the hillbillies of east Missouri (just picked a random place.. don't be offended Missourians).

Lol, I wonder if it costs you more in transportation costs to go each time to the store than it would be to just buy a 10 pack off Amazon...

Alright, that's all I will comment on women's underwear. The inner 14-yr old in me can't stop laughing when I think "underwear".

I have done this for years, but apparently they do figure you out.  Last time I bought something from VS was I think the annual sale last Jan (2013).  I used to get freebies all the time, but most recently was sent only a coupon for a freebie upon purchase.

I'd love to get away with this, but underwear is one of the things I'm really picky about. I spend about $25-30/ year buying the same brand I've bought since high school. Last time I did this it was hilarious because I walked into this store clearly aimed at teens with my toddler in hand and huge pregnant belly. Lol. Whatever! Their undies are uncannily perfect for the postpartum time!

Bras I buy at Victoria's Secret. 2 bras, once every three years. Considering they last that whole time, feel comfortable, and I don't have to buy more because they wear so darn well, I figure the cost per use is pretty good.
